Not long before our first trial of the year on January 29th. You can renew (or get your first) Club membership at the trial but make sure you have your ACU registration card with you when you sign on because it will be checked. Good news is if you don’t get your ACU card in time, all being well we should have the new for 2017 ACU single day registration facility available for just £3. Good idea to arrive a bit earlier as it takes longer to take entries and deal with memberships etc on the first couple of trials.
Do you know about the threat to all off road motorsport?
You can read about it and do something about it here
The prize presentation will take place at the usual venue, Manor Golf Club, Drighlington at 7pm Friday 10th February. The format is a little less formal this time with a quality buffet menu and no pre-determined seating plan. Tickets are £17 for adults (and £10 for juniors). Nige at TrialsUK will co-ordinate ticket sales. Again it will be a joint function with our neighbour club West Leeds.
The Championship points table including all 2016 Award Winners is now updated (there’s a link to the award winners above).
And if you find yourself with a duplicated Christmas present, don’t take it back to the shop, donate it to the raffle – the more the merrier.

We raised £1217.50 for the ACU Ben Fund and MIND Charities from our November Bob Owen Charity trial – thanks to all who contributed.
Note for 2017 season – the ACU have improved and extended their online facilities – you can not only renew your ACU registration online but you can also join (or rejoin) the Club; the ACU will pass your details and fee onto us.
Where are our Trials? Just about everything you need to know about a trial can be found by clicking on that specific event including a map of the location. There’s a bit more info on the locations (and maybe even the nearest postcode) in ‘Locations’ which is revealed when you mouse over the ‘Info’ tab.
We publish Regs/Entry Forms from Yorkshire Championship Events (incl West Yorks Champs) on here if they are passed on to us – there’s a ‘Post’ which lists them here
RESULTS:- we always try to get the results up on the relevant event page on here and on
www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials as soon as they are available so remember to have a look there – or if you are on facebook, ‘like’ our page and the results will come to you!
We also like to support TrialsCentral so the events and results can usually be found on there too.

All our day time trials start at 11.
2017 Events in ‘Events’ tab, printer friendly list in ‘Info, Forms’.
2017 costs held; Membership £10 adults, £5 Under 16 (includes access to Swaine Woods).
Club Series trials, £15 adults, £10 under 16; Other trials should be the same unless specified differently on the Regs.
Remember, if you ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/horsforthtrials) you’ll get a notification reminding you of our next trial in the week before and also when the results are posted.Update; seems that, coincident with now receiving lots of unsolicited (paid for!) notifications, no longer is everyone receiving all FB/Horsforth posts on their FB page. Can only suggest that more frequent ‘liking’ might help improve the latter problem; I guess we are stuck with the former.
If anyone can throw any light on this please let us know.
2017 Membership forms can be downloaded from the ‘Forms’ tab.
